This time our Pack a Pound initiative saw the Chaa Creek team, consisting of our program coordinator Ms Denise Duran, Social Media Admin Jared Bradley and our Driver Allan Chan who is also one of our naturalist guides, make their way past Bullet Tree Falls, Cayo to the villages of Billy White and Duck Run 2.
Every year on the Friday morning of the Sovereigns day weekend (March 7th in lieu of the 9th this year) both amateur and professional teams of rowers from Belize and elsewhere gather to participate in the “La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge”. This four day endurance canoe race is the only of its sort in this region and pits the teams of three against the rigours and surprises of navigating the Macal and Belize rivers.
With all these options it might become easy to get careless and throw caution to the wind because, why not, this guy over here said there’s a bunch of ways to get around in Belize anyway, so why not be spontaneous? So for those of you looking to just dive in here’s a few Dos and Don’ts for travelling in Mother nature’s best kept secret.
